IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD, or in the case of Tom and Emma Lane and their four children, a farm. “We were living in Sydney, but wanted to give our kids a taste of the country life that both Tom and I had experienced growing up,” Emma explains. “And then we thought, what about a farm for the people, where children and adults alike can learn more about where real food comes from?” On their Byron Bay property – called simply The Farm – Emma and Tom work with like-minded businesses and growers to promote their “Grow, Feed, Educate and Give Back” philosophy, and in September they’ll release a book called The Farm Community, to spread the message.
